'It's now rare for a company to maintain a truly lasting advantage. Competitors and customers have become too unpredictable, and industries too amorphous. Speed is paramount. Fast and roughly right decision making must replace deliberations that are precise but slow.'

 

Dr. Rita Gunter McGrath
Harvard Business Review

WHY IS THIS COMPLEX & EVOLVING TOPIC IMPORTANT IN 2020…

 

Companies that master the response to a crisis will reap long-term rewards. They are smarter, and create opportunities to win in the long term [BCG]. A frightening prospect given 72% of senior executives believe bad strategic decisions are the prevailing norm in their organisation [McKinsey]. Speed of decision making will define the winners and losers as the 'new normal' is increasingly defined.

 

'Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face'
Mike Tyson

 

2020 will be the most digitally disruptive year to date. The pressure to transform has hit boiling point, but continued flux in consumer demands, geopolitical (in)stability, and a rising cyber-security threat all risk derailing transformation plans. Whether your priority is to drive growth, meet customer demands or mitigate risk across your organisation, making the right decisions will be more crucial than ever before. If your company can't make these decisions quickly, you will be left behind. How can you respond?

WHAT IS THE BOARDROOM EXPERIENCE?

All of our meetings are collaborative and informative, designed to give you actionable ideas you can take back to your business the next day. Our virtual roundtables are no different. Prior to the meeting taking place, each attendee is interviewed to understand their interests and perspective. Those who register early will also contribute towards the meeting’s accompanying report, which will be published prior to the virtual meeting and will be the focus of the discussion.

Our Club Partner

The Club is supported by our partners at SAS Software, the number 1 AI and advanced analytics software platform. With a scope to cover all sectors, SAS use machine learning to fight fraud, computer vision to improve cancer survival rates, and natural language processing to increase customer understanding.
